Ringland Chris Formerly Three Rivers Shiraz 2004

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2004 Chris Ringland Shiraz is from another top vintage. Like the other wines, it spent 42 months in new French oak. Aromas of scorched earth, pencil lead, espresso, black currant and blueberry lead to a dense, complex, youthful wine with layer up... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Three Rivers Winery is a destination winery located just west of Walla Walla, Washington in the Columbia Valley wine country. Our award-winning white and red wines are sourced from established vineyards and famed appellations from across Washington State. Visit Three Rivers Winery for a wine tasting and winery tour. And buy Three Rivers wine online or in our onsite gift shop. Why Three Rivers? The name Three Rivers represents the three most prominent rivers in the appellations from which our winery sources its grapes-the Columbia, Snake, and Walla Walla Rivers. The Winery. In 1999, owners of Three Rivers Winery broke ground on the 16-acre site that is now home to our 18,000 sq. ft. facility. Set atop a small knoll overlooking the surrounding vineyards and Mill Creek, the winery features stunning views of the Blue Mountains in the distance and the nearby Whitman Mission. Inside, the winery includes two distinct areas: a 14,000 sq. ft. cellar and barrel room used for the production and storage of fine wines, and a 4,000 sq. ft. tasting room, meeting room, and wine retail store open to the public. In addition, the winery features three short holes of golf for winery guests. The interior design of the building blends a rustic feel into the contemporary structure, with vaulted ceilings and exposed timber trusses. The meeting room accommodates up to 75 people for business meetings and other group functions, and is available to rent. In the adjacent tasting room and retail space, winery visitors can taste and purchase Three Rivers' wine and related merchandise, or simply relax next to one of the stone hearth fireplaces-one inside and the other outside on the spacious deck.

The 2003 Chris Ringland Shiraz has according to Ringland, "changed dramatically in the last year, getting denser". Nevertheless, it is not as saturated in color as the two previous vintages and is more advanced in its development. It is still a brill... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The monumental 2001 Shiraz, from a 91-year old vineyard, spent 43 months in new French 300-liter hogsheads. The result is a compelling wine of great richness, flavor breadth, and length.

Vintage: 2000 03/19/2013

Formerly known as Three Rivers, this cuvee can be one of Australia's greatest Shiraz. However, 2000 was a challenging year for this 95-year-old vineyard cropped at .5 tons of fruit per acre (only 60 cases produced). As Chris Ringland admitted, i... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

This is a re-review of the 2000 Shiraz since I significantly underrated it previously. It is clearly the Barossa wine of the vintage, and has put on considerable weight since it was bottled. This stunning cuvee, which used to be known as the Three Ri... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
